Yes people, they call it a crackberry for a reason. I am addicted to my blackberry. We have had a close relationship for the past year and a half and I am currently faced with the dilemia of possibly having to get a new phone. I am deeply upset. Nobody knows me like my Berry. I know such an original name huh?
But to get where I was going with this post. I think in this day and age of techology, that I am able to be more in touch with people than ever. I can recieve an email at the drop of a hat. And I can have a conversation with someone via text through out the day without missing a beat of what the kids are doing. How else could I "talk" to someone all day long who is suppose to be working? Who needs to actually pick up the phone and talk anymore?
Me personally, I have a phone phobia. Really I'm not joking. I really am a people person, I enjoy talking and listening to people. But there is something about the phone that throws me off. I have a higher pitched voice that only seems exaggerated on the telephone. So I start to think that I am annoying the person on the other end with the sound of my voice. And then I start to think that the person won't like me anymore. I can get all sweaty and clamy. Its not pretty.
But with all this technology, is it really causing us to be more out of touch with eachother? Communication between two human beings is hard enough without having to decipher what someone means in a text message or an email. Things are...um...written and taken the wrong way or misunderstood. Are we really out of touch with trying to stay in touch?
